    What a joke company to work for any one with half ambition will defo move on to something better it's a must

    Yardie (Former Employee) Birmingham, England (UK)

    ProsMet a few good co workers before leaving that's its

    ConsWell here on planet earth can you expect two people to run the yard with all the duties involved the yard I worked in was way to busy,serving customers sometime three builders at a time while loading the trucks and doing the picks for the day or day after worse if the other bloke goes on break your screwed and don't expect the sales staff to help hell no if any thing to add to the mix you get a further picking note hand from them at some random point knowing your on your own and can clearly can see your struggling at one stage some forget that they was once in the yard so what happen to the compassion hmmm,what a joke and never again if the boredom don't kill you the physical work will defo only so much sweeping one can do

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making promises you clear can't keep and like someone said bulid the staff morals up make them feel special get rid of these company cars if you want safe some money ever thought on doing that while I can only afford to drive a beat down car to work why can't they I cant see the justice of needing to work 9.5 hours especially once the boredom kicks in and get some one in at least part time to help in the yard instead of company cars

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    dont even think bout coming to jewson

    Hgv Driver (Current Employee)

    Prosabsolutly none, treated like dirt, poorly paid expected to work overtime for nothing and then they bring in new drivers with no experience and pay them more money . the only good thing about jewson is the day you leave and join the real job market paying proper wages. too many cheifs with expense accounts and company cars that dont directly profit the company and who seem to have the sole task of keeping theirselves in a cushy little job doing nothing and im sorry i have read your guidlines but their is absolutly nothing good i can think of to recommend this lot.

    Consread the above. they pay rubbish wages they took away the bonus they took away our overtime pay but kept the extra work.

    Advice to Senior Managementtry raising the moral of your staff. get the yard boys off minimum wage. pay your drivers a decent wage and bring back some inncentive. the frequently quoted phrase if you dont like it you know where the door is .. is not the way to go as thats what all the best staff do.. walk out to decent jobs and your left with the dross

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
